Dice-K Headed To DL With Sprained Elbow

Red Sox placing Matsuzaka on DL

      BOSTON (AP) – Dice-K is headed to the DL with an elbow injury.
      The Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona says starting pitcher
Daisuke Matsuzaka is going on the disabled list to rest his right
elbow, which has been bothering him.
      Matsuzaka had an MRI on Tuesday. Francona says the elbow is
sprained and Matsuzaka will be going on the DL. The Red Sox had not
yet officially made the move as of Tuesday night, when their home
game against Baltimore was postponed because of rain.
      Matsuzaka had control problems in his start Monday night against
the Orioles.
      Francona says there is no timetable on Matsuzaka's return.
      Boston also put RHP John Lackey on the DL on this week, leaving
them without two of their starters indefinitely.
